Reiki Explained

What is Reiki?

Reiki orignates in Japan and is a technique for relaxation and stress reduction that also promotes healing. It is a Japanese word - pronounced Ray-Key - that means Universal Life Force. This energy is all around us, it flows through every living thing. It is a simple, natural and safe method of healing which is available to everyone and everything, even your pets.

Reiki is a spiritual method but has no affinity to any religion or dogma. Anyone from any faith or belief system can practise and benefit from it. 

What does it feel like?

Everybody experiences Reiki differently. It produces a deep relaxation which promotes calm and a sense of well-being on all levels. Some people experience sensations of heat, cold, tingling or see colours, whilst others can have an emotional response. All of these sensations indicate that energy shifts are taking place, opening the door to harmony and balance.

How do you do it?

Reiki is given by gently laying-on hands or sent across time and space with a distance treatment. Whether you are on the couch in person or having a distant session, Reiki treats the whole person - body, mind, emotions and spirit - leaving you with a feeling of calm and peace.

Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatments and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.

"This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain; our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness." ~ Dalai Lama

Distance reiki

Distant Reiki is a wonderful treatment and can be received by you anywhere in the world.
  • 1. What to expect

    Also known as absent healing, the sender and the recipient can be in the next room, town or even the other side of the world. Sending this gentle healing energy to another person or animal is instantaneous, there are no time delays regardless of the distance. 

  • 2. Prepare yourself

    The maximum benefits are reached if you are lying down or sitting somewhere quiet and free of distractions, such as mobile phones, children, and pets. If you are unable to do this, that is OK, the most important thing is to be as comfortable as possible. The healing energy will still benefit you, no matter what you are doing.

  • 3. Your treatment

    A distance treatment lasts about 30-40 minutes. During your treatment session, just relax and be open to receive the energy. Try to focus on letting go of the negatives in your life, such as tension, stress and pain. Before your session starts tell yourself something like this - “I am open to receive this loving energy, and ask that anything that is no longer serving me to my highest and greatest good, be released during this session. Thank you.”

  • 4. And relax!

    Other than that, just relax and enjoy your session. Have a glass of water to hand, and maybe a blanket to wrap yourself up in to help you feel cosy and secure.  At the end of your treatment, I will contact you to let you know that I have finished. 

  • 5. Aftercare

    Afterwards I suggest you drink plenty of still, preferably filtered, water. This helps your body flush out any unwanted toxins released by the energy. The Universal Life Force goes straight to the source of your imbalance or condition, often to the emotional or spiritual level of your being.  Be patient and kind with yourself.

Explaining Distant Reiki

I have written about “Explaining Reiki to Others”, but I find that when someone who doesn’t know about Reiki wants to know about distant Reiki, it becomes more difficult. Particularly if they want an explanation for how it works. Many people are somewhat able to understand the basic concepts of Reiki in general, but the thought that this could work for someone on the other side of the world can seem too much to take in.

My experience has been that those who are unfamiliar with energy in healing will ask if distant Reiki works through computers, via the internet or over the phone. They have a hard time understanding how a treatment can be sent without connecting it to something tangible for it to flow through that connects both parties.

I admit I was very skeptical of healing energy being real over long distances until I had had several experiences with it. My first experience was in almost 6 years ago. A woman I was friends with was part of a group that met once a week to send healing energies to those in need. She offered to add my name to the list to help me with numerous health problems I had struggled with for years. I said yes, more to humor her than anything. I felt it couldn’t hurt because I didn’t think it was real.

I was surprised that I could actually feel the energy flow from this group of people each week on the night they met. Even when I forgot about the healing, I would realize I felt peace wash over me and my pain would ease. Within a short time, my health issues began to fade away. I also had more clarity of thought and ability to cope with life.

Yet, even when I learned about Reiki and energy healing, I was still skeptical that it could work. I had seen prayer work from long distances. I believed there also might be special people that could heal from far away. I doubted that anyone could be taught to do it. And I still doubted anyone who said they could do energy work from a distance until they proved it to me.
The telephone, cable TV and Internet all use energy frequencies we can’t see in order to function. The electricity in our homes does the same, as does a radio. All of these have to be tuned to the particular frequency they operate at in order to work. They all have ways to adjust the flow of energy built in so that we can turn them on, off or use them in a different way. And all of them were thought too unbelievable to be true when people first heard of them.

Distant Reiki works the same way. It is energy that must be “tuned” to the person it is being sent to. Once it is “tuned in” it will flow through the energy currents that exist naturally, just the same way that a phone signal or wifi signal does. Distance is no object for it, just as it is no object for the internet or phone communications. The energy that surrounds us carries all of these energies to the intended receiver. With Reiki, the practitioner is the conduit of the energy.

It can be a difficult concept to understand that our thoughts, intentions and emotions are energy. Yet most people can feel that their emotions create an energy sensation in the body. They may also understand that the nerve endings and spinal cord help to carry these energies throughout the body. If you go one step further, you can see the relationship between our thoughts and our emotions. It’s not much of a leap from there to see that our thoughts and emotions have an effect on our perceptions and the people around us. These things truly change our environment! It is all energy.

We have to be careful to start where the person is when we explain Reiki and distant Reiki to someone. All of this begins to feel like second nature to us. Telephones, internet, radio and TV all seem like ordinary things to us, too. But to someone who has never experienced them, they seem mysterious and unreal at first. Some may even be frightened by them, until they have experienced them. The same is true with Reiki and other energy medicine techniques. Be patient and clear. Share your experiences and offer to share distant Reiki with them, if they are open to it. As always, experiencing Reiki first hand seems to clear up any doubt!

Dark or Stuck Energy, Cords and 'Entities'

When you hear about dark or stuck energy, does it make you uncomfortable? What about cord cutting? When I first began doing energy work, these things made me uneasy. I had sensed these things in others energy fields for years, but didn’t know what they meant or what to do about them. As I learned more, they became less frightening.

Dark or stuck energy often appears as a thick brown or black cloud in the aura or body of a person. It is simply an area where not enough energy or life force (light) is flowing through. These can often be seen by sensitive people in other places as well, such as houses or other buildings and most objects that people and living beings have been active around for any length of time.

Dark, stuck energy is not a scary as it may sound. It is simply an energy that didn't flow through. It got caught and became stagnant. It may have been a very difficult emotion that the person was unable to process fully that got stuck in a repetitive loop of thought-emotion-thought. These can become lodged in the tissues and cause illness, which will appear as darkness.
Negative emotions are very constrictive in nature. When they are experienced and then released, there is usually no blockage and energy continues resumes its normal flow. But when there are repeated negative emotions, or when thought patterns become such that the person remains stuck in processing the old emotional pattern, the emotional energy can’t flow through and release. The pathway remains constricted and becomes blocked.

We can become caught in patterns of thought or in relational patterns that are destructive or that once served to keep us healthy or safe, but are no longer needed. If we continue to operate out of these old patterns due to fear or habit, they can generate stuck and dense energy as well. These dark energies get stuck in our energy field and lock in the pattern, keeping us stuck there and making it harder to break free and often making it difficult to even recognize we are stuck.

These dark densities can sometimes seem to take on a life of their own, which is when they begin to be referred to as entities. This is when we have given an energy power over us for so long that it has its own strength. We empower many emotions and thought forms in this way. Those who are involved in highly charged and unhealthy thought patterns may be unwittingly empowering entities in their energy field and the environment around them. These entities are mainly made of and fed on emotional energy and the negative emotional energy that charges these individuals and family situations is what keep them alive. When the situation is healed, they have nothing to live on, so they leave.

This sounds a bit frightening, but the truth is nearly everyone has some degree of entities around them and in their field. We are all working toward the light. While these entities can become very controlling and nasty in some cases that is not usually what happens. If this does happen, you may need special assistance to remove the entity, such as a shaman who works with entity removal. However, healing the original cause is highly important.

When densities appear, the channels can be opened back up so that the energy (light) can move again. Reiki or other energy work is helpful to do this. It is also helpful to remove the dark or dense energy blockage. Reiki will reduce the size of a blockage on its own and most practitioners are able to see or feel a blockage and energetically "pull" it out. This may take more than one session for larger densities.

Cord cutting brings to mind the idea of something painful. Or the thought that you will be removing yourself from someone or something that you don't wish to be separated from. There is no physical cutting involved in the process. It is all energetic. It is actually the cutting away of unhealthy emotional energy that is stuck in a loop and can't release. It keeps the person stuck and unable to break loose or think clearly for themselves.

These cords can be found and cut with energy. The area is then healed so that a new cord is less likely to grow back and also to soothe the pain of the release. This does not end relationships. It may help soothe the pain of old tethers to a relationship that is already over and ended, but it will not end a healthy relationship. It may also end unhealthy attachments in an otherwise loving relationship, so that it may flourish.

When you actively and honestly engage yourself in your own healing process, there is little to fear in the darkness. The healing process will not always be a pleasant or easy one, but if you commit yourself to it, the darkness will always come to light.

Reiki, Drinking Water and Postive Thoughts

It was quite a few years ago when a friend lent me a copy of Masaru Emoto’s book, The Hidden Messages in Water. I was simply blown away! Although my understanding of energy had grown immensely since learning Reiki, seeing actual photos of water crystals deepened this understanding even more. Dr. Emoto had performed a number of experiments where water had been polluted and then loving thoughts were sent to it. Photos of water crystals “before and after” demonstrated how much these thoughts improved the water crystals. Before the experiment began, the crystals were deformed and dark. After positive energy was sent, crystals from the same water source were perfectly shaped and stunningly beautiful.

Drinking clean, healthy water has always been a priority of mine. But, we took it a step further, by adding positive energy to it. It became a ritual in our household to tape loving words on the bottom of our water pitcher, or to send Reiki to any drinking water we imbibed.

However, the most important lesson of Dr. Emoto’s work is the effects of thoughts on physical substances, such as water. In the same way, our thoughts have a direct effect on other people. During one Reiki session, a client presented with back pain. I received the message she was under psychic attack, being “stabbed in the back” by other people’s thoughts. Since this is a regular client, and I knew her spiritual beliefs are very open, I shared this message with her. She stated the message described her work environment exactly. Due to an unpopular stance she took, several coworkers were spreading untrue rumors, attacking her integrity. We discussed ways she could protect herself energetically each day, when she entered her workplace. Her back pain soon disappeared.

Our thoughts about ourselves and our actions are also very powerful, and affect our own energy levels. Think about a time when you felt disappointed in yourself, or ashamed of an action you took. How harsh were your judgments? What words of criticism did you use? Now, think about your body’s energy level for the next minutes, or hours. Were you tired, irritable and tense? Did you feel despondent and sad?

Let’s rewrite the script, by using this imaginative exercise. Focus on that same situation, when you felt disappointment or shame. But, this time, talk to yourself in a loving way. Tell yourself that you could have made better choices, but you learned a good life lesson and will not do it again. Forgive yourself. Remind yourself you are a human being who is always unconditionally loved by the Divine. Check in with your feelings – you may be feeling calm and peaceful, and perhaps giving gratitude for yet another opportunity to grow.

Sadly, Dr. Emoto died last month, at the age of 71 years. Let’s send him positive thoughts and love for being a great teacher to all of us. I will think of him every time I see my joyful words on the bottom of my water pitcher!
